Week 41: Climbing Beastly Stairs and Making Baptismal Challenges!

This week in the Huesteca zone. Oh yeah, It was fun and its fun here in this area. Just one problem. There are a ton of mountains! Our area is small but we have two mountains in our area that we have to climb every day! My legs are about dying every day haha  we didnt walk that much in soto la marina. 

Hopefully i dont really sound like a girl when i say this but the scencery (however you spell it) its beautiful! The top of our house you can see the 2 mountains and at night the houses obviously have there lights on and it looks so COOL!
In our rama, which i dont know why its a branch but it has 90 people that go ever sunday which is a ton. And there are 6 missionaries in this branch, well really 7 with a pair of sister missionaries. they are in a trio.

yesterday (was) district conference and president Jordan came and spoke. IT was packed!! All the branches from this area went and there was a ton of people. President Jordan spoke about tithing and spoke pretty direct and strong. He told them that this will be the last time he wants to talk about tithing with them. Then he said "El seƱor no necesita sus tristes pesos!" in english its the Lord doesnt need your sad pesos. It was so funny! All the missionaries were trying not to laugh but the members werent.
So in this area we dont have that many members. there is just one active member family and only a few less actives. And we have like 2 investigators. One of them is named Lili. She is with ganas.  We taught her on friday and the lession was full of the spirit. We just talked about the Book of Mormon and how its important to read it to have a testimony about it. She is having a hard time right now with her husdband. for some things or another there are getting a divorce and she has 2 little girls, which by the way are the cuttest things ever!! They always say Los Elderes!! Its cute. then after the lesson we walked with her back to her house and i started to have races with her little girl. Shes about 3. Its was cute. 

Then we taught her on saturaday and holy cow the spirit was even stronger in this lession! She read 2 Nephi 31 all about baptism. So we focused ourselfs in bapstism. I cant say or explain it but the spirit was so strong the whole lesson. I was going to invite her to be baptized but i didnt know when!!! I was so mad at myself. My comp kept going in cicrles to give me the chance to do it but i he invited her and she said yes!! For the 26 of october

And she went to church yesterday!! My comp and i were waiting there in the sacrament room and we started to sing the first hym and we called her like 10 times and she didnt pick up. We were so disappointed until she walked in the door and we gave her our seats. Because it was packed. So we left the room to go to another and then by comp and i were like YESSSS she came and we like hugged each other haha
Well it seems like Julies party was a blast!!! I wish i was there. SOunded aweesome. On the beach with a bonfire and sports and a ton of food! I think im starting to gain some weight haha i eat so much now! And even better with this Ammon kid making a night to remember for Julie. SOunds like a good kid if our whole family likes him.
